Astley Castle takes the Stirling Prize

London’s WWM architects saw their Astley Castle project win the Stirling Prize last night at a ceremony in London’s newly revamped Central Saint Martins.

The project is a daring and stunning reworking of a previously ruined, 12th-century fortified Manor House in Warwickshire, where the architects have decided against painstaking restoration in favour of a more modern, adaptive approach, carefully integrating new materials with the original construction and creating an innovative intervention while maintaining the charm and character of the original building.

Described by RIBA president Stephen Hodder as a “labour of love”, the project took the prize after seeing off competition from projects such as the Giant’s Causeway Visitor Centre by Heneghan Peng Architects and Oxford’s Bishop Edward King Chapel from Niall McLaughlin Architects, taking 27% of the final vote.
